Last week, while in NYC, we had the great pleasure of meeting John Truex and Richard Lambertson from Lambertson Truex. We will be posting the interview, along with pictures from the upcoming Fall 08 collection next week. However, I can not pass up sharing Megs’ new loot tonight!
After meeting the two designers, we promised them that we were going to visit their store on Madison Ave, directly across from the flagship Hermes store. It was of no surprise that we were going to see a lot of fantastic creations, unique shapes and exquisite craftsmanship. It was this one piece that completely struck me when I saw her sitting on a table near the stairway in the rear of the store. It is usually Megs that gets excited about beautiful bags. I am usually just the tech nerd who appreciates bags, but doesn’t love them. In the case of this Lambertson Truex Florence though, I was completely blown away. This bag excited me for Megs more than her Birkin did last November. There, you heard me say it.
To me, the bag has the perfect shape, perfect size, perfect colors and perfect materials. It is an exotic combination of croc, lizard and ostrich leathers, gorgeously combined with LT’s signature light-blue suede lining and ostrich trim on the inside.
Congratulations Megs on your first dive into the world of exotics!
